Crystal Blast Stratios

What a pretty ship.


My tastes have always been simple. I like the color blue. This would be perfect in blue and white instead of blue and black but it is near perfect and so sweetly, blue.

How does one fit a ship? One of the things I shed early in my Eve career was fitting my own ships. I'm not a min/max type of person and I dove into a PvP environment where my actions effected others. That gave me a responsibility to fit the 'best' way. In the end, I never learned how to fit ships in Eve on a deep, personal level. I am not interested in fitting tools or maximum stats. They are important in the game of Eve but not important to me.

But the habits run super deep. Looking at ship fitting makes me twitch. Not because I cannot put a ship together but because what I am inclined to do probably won't be the right thing and way. Then the memory of mockery and being paraded before others and mocked for ignorance tickles at me. It is my constant love hate with Eve. I enjoy the game but I dislike some social things about the game for the same reason I dislike sports. I'm not competitive and that urge to insult and belittle people for 'winning' is not something that I possess. It is not that I mind loss it is that being mocked saddens me. Not because I failed but because it is such an unpleasant aspect of human nature. But sometimes one has to learn to close their eyes and continue on. Similar to how I learned not to google myself to see what people were saying during the CSM.

I've always been that person that used the gear that they liked not because it was best. Rarely do I end a game with tiered gear with the best. I am heavily effected by the design. Similar to how ugly my Legion always was. Bafflingly ugly.

I was told they redid some of the looks. 

But, a Sttratios I shall get and some scanning implants. And then I shall fly into the darkness to find some more skillbooks. I think I need to learn some ice harvesting skills and get a little ice ship for that. Maybe its finally time to play in wormholes for me.

  1. So glad to see you back to posting and playing. Your blog is always one of my daily stops. GL with your future endeavors in game - I am coming back from "winning" Eve recently as well. I've decided to seed a market in an underdeveloped part of New Eden. Guess who is the inspiration for that? o7

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
